Share the ride with one or more persons over 16 years of age as either a driver or rider. Note: a carpool partner may be going to work at another business or location.
Share a ride of ten miles or more (one way) with 6 to 14 persons in a comfortable 15 passenger van. The van driver keeps the van at his house and rides free. Riders share the monthly cost of the van. Commuting by van which is less expensive and more fun than driving alone.
